On the 28th October 2015 UKSTT Council Member & Catsurveys Business Development Manager – Luke Steadman took part in hosting UKSTT’s first ever Mapping Masterclass, which was held at The National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham. This was an extremely informative event which attracted 25 attendees, and was co- hosted by UKSTT Council Member and Drilline Products MD – Colin Tickle.
The morning started with an arousing introduction and overview from UKSTT and TSA, which was followed with interactive presentations by some of the industry’s leading professionals; including Luke Steadman’s fully engaging talk on “Practitioner View & Deliverable”, which sparked lots of interest in the room. This one day masterclass was a big hit with everyone that attended, and provided priceless insights into Utility Mapping, along with fun and informative utility topic discussions.
